The AACR Philadelphia Marathon on Sunday raises awareness and financial support for the non-profit thanks to the Fundraisers, the AACR staff and of course the Runners for Research. The American Association for Cancer Research is committed to cancer research, administering grants, and finding cures for all types of cancers. It is the oldest and largest scientific organization in the world focusing on cancer research. The AACR is located right here in our hometown in Philadelphia at 615 Chestnut Street.
The AACR Philadelphia Marathon Start Line is the Benjamin Franklin Parkway. The race route proceeds throughout scenic Philadelphia through Fairmount Park along the Schuylkill River through University City up to Manayunk then back through the historic district towards the steps of the Art Museum.
Gary Barbera and his Barbera Cares Programs strategically chose the locations WHERE THE PEOPLE ARE for their AACR PSA Solar-Powered Recycling Kiosks to efficiently maximize their use for litter disposal and cleanliness and optimization of visual appeals for charitable support in densely populated areas. Along the marathon route and the cheer zones the bright Pink AACR SRK’s will help encourage support of the AACR and green-up the city by increasing the ability to dispose of recycling water bottles and other trash.
It’s Philadelphia Marathon Weekend in Philly. Gary Barbera and His Barbera Cares Programs continues support of the AACR and encourages everyone to Champion the AACR.
